RE: Subsurface Exploration Operations 

640 Tremont Street 

Boston, Massacliusetts 

Deiu" Mr. Herzog: 

In accordance with the approval of our Proposal MASS. 159.0, dated March 1, 19SS, we have 
undertaken and completed the subsurface exploration program at the above noted property. 

The subsurface conditions at the site were explored by drilling two test boring and excavating 
five test pits within the building limits. The test borings were drilled 22.0 feet below the 
basement grade, and the test pits excavated adjacent to the building walls to determine the present 
style of foundation support. 

The test borings were drilled by Briggs Associates, Inc. (BAI) of Rockland, Massachusetts on 
April 22, 1988, while the test pits were excavated by Crescent Hill Contracting of Duxbury, 
Massachusetts on tlie same day. All operations were supervised by BAI personnel. 

Test borings were perfonned in accordance to ASTM D1586, "Penetration Test and Split Barrel 
Sampling of Soil". Standard Penetrations tests were performed at 5 foot depth inter\'als in all 
boring locations. 

Soil samples obtained from the subsurface exploration program were classified in the field by 
visual and textural examination using the Unified Soils Classification System. Test boring and 
test pit logs are attached to tliis letter, along wiili a subsurface explorauon location plan. 

Our knowledge of the subsurface conditions at the site are based on the results of our field 
investigation. The following subsurface strata were encountered starting from the basement 

a. Grev Brown Miscellaneous Fill was encountered at the surface of all subsurface 
explorations and varied in thickness from 2.5 to 3 feet. The miscellaneous fill layer 
consisted of a heterogeneous layer of gravel, sand, silt, clay, bricks, wood, ash and 
cinders. The miscellaneous fill layer was loose to medium dense with a Standard 
Penetrations Test (SPT) N- Values* varying between 8 and greater than 21 blows. 

SPT N-Valuc is the number of blows for a 140 lb. hammer falling freely ihrougli 30 inches required to advance 
Lhc standard 1-3/8 inch inside diameter by 2 inch outside diameter split-spoon sampler t)ie last 12 inches of an 
18 inch sampling interval. 

IB A / 640 Trcmont Sircct - Boston p^"'-,^^V l^^^ 

Project No. 80554MA ^^S^i ol 3 

5 RlueA'cllow riav Fill (CL : Fill) was encountered underlying the miscellaneous 1 
layer in all test pit locations and varied in thickness from 1.5 to 2.0 feet. The clayey J 
layer consisted of medium plastic fines. 

c Yellow Brown Clavev Silt (MH) was encountered underlying the miscellaneous fill 
all test bonne locations, underlying die clay fill layer in all test pit locations, and van 
in thickness from 0.5 to 1 1.0 feet. The clayey silt layer consisted of medium plas 
fines and was very stiff to hard with a SPT N-Values varying between 27 and 

d. Blue Grey Siltv Clav (CD was encountered underlying the yellow brown clayey < 
layer in all test boring locations, and extended to the maximum depth explored whi 
was 22.0 feet below the existing grade. The silty clay layer consisted of highly plas 
fines, was very stiff with SPT N-Values varying between 23 and 24 blows. 

The groundwater table was encountered approximately 6.0 below basement surface in all of ( 
subsurface exploration locations. Guundwater levels may be affected by local anomak 
conditions and may be dependent on seasonal factors and thus may not represent the levels to 
encountered in the future. Generally, groundwater readings are highest in the early spring t 
lowest in the fall. 

The infonnation provided from the test pits showed that the existing building foundation 
supported on tlie very stiff to hard clayey silt layer. This layer of soil is located approximate!; 
feet below the existing grade and is a viable bearing strata for support of the proposed building 

Thank you for engaging our services to undertake this project. If you have any questions, plci 
do not hesitate to contact us at your convenience. 

Very truly yours,

Abbreviated Language: Language used in the Specifications and other Contract 
Documents is the abbreviated type. Implied "vords and meanings will be 
8f>propriately interpreted. Singular 'S'ords 'vill be interpreted as plural and 
plural vords interpreted as singular vhere applicable and vhere the full 
context of the Contract Documents so indicates. 

Imperative and streamlined langi^ge is used generally in the Specifications. 
Requirements expressed in the imperative mood are to be performed by the 
Contractor. At certain locations in the text, for clarity, subjective langxjjage is 
used to describe responsibilities that must be fulfilled Indirectly by the 
Contractor, or by others vhen so noted. 

The vords "shall be" shall be inclu<ted by inference "vherever a colon (:) 
is used vithin a sentence or phrase. 


Taino Tower 
Boston, Massachusetts 

Assignment of St>ecidlists: The Specification requires that certain specific construction 
activities shall be performed by specialists vho are recc^nized experts in the 
operations to be performed. The specialists must be engaged for those activities, and 
assignments are requirements over "s^ich the Contractor has no choice or option. 
Nevertheless, the ultimate responsibility for fulfilling Contract reqiiirements remains 
fith the Contractor. 

This requirement shall not be interpreted to conflict -frith enforcement of 
building co<tes and similar regulations governing the Vork. It is also not 
intended to interfere -vith local trade union jurisdictional settlements and 
similar conventions. 

Trades : Use of titles such as "carpentry" is not intended to imply that certain 
construction activities must be performed by accredited or unionized 
individuals of a corresponding generic name, such as "carpenter." It also does 
not imply that requirements specified apply exclusively to tradespersons of the 
corresponding generic name. 


Graphic symbols : Vhere not otherwise noted, symbols are defined by "Architectural 
Graphic Standards." published by John ¥iley & Sons, Inc.. eighth edition. 

Mechanical /Electrical Prayings : Graphic symbols used on mechanical and electrical 
Dra-wings are generally aligned vith rjrmbDls rccommen<ted by ASHRAE. ¥herc 
appropriate, they are siipplemented by more specific symbols recommen<ted by 
technical associations including ASME, ASPE, IEEE, and similar organizations. Refer 
instances of uncertainty to the Architect for clarification before proceeding. 


Applicability of Standards : Except vhere the Contract Documents include more 
stringent requirements, applicable constriction industry standards have the same 
force and effect as if bound or copied directly into the Contract Documents. Such 
standards are made a part of the Contract Docmnents by reference. Individual Sections 
indicate vhich codes and sten<terds the Contractor must k^p available at the Project 
Site for reference. 

Publication Dates: Vhere the date of issue of a referenced standard is not specified, 
comply vith the standard in effect as of date of ContreK^t Documents. 

Updated Stan<teirds : At the req\jest of the Architect, Contractor, or authority 
having jurisdiction, submit a Change Order proposal vhere an applicable co<te 
or standard has been revised and reissued after the date of the Contract 
Documents and before performance of Vork affected. The Architect vill decide 
vhether to isste a Change Order to proceed vith the i^>dated standard. 


Taino Tower 

Bostxrn. Massachusetts 

Conflicting Reduirements: ¥here compliance vith tvo or more standards is specified, 
and they establish different or conflicting requirements for minim\im quantities or 
qvjsdity levels, the most stringent requirement vill be enforced, xmless the Contract 
Itocuments indicate otherwise. Refer requirements that are different, but apparently 
equal, and uncertainties as to vhich quality level is more stringent to the Architect for 
a<tecision before proceeding. 

Minimum Quantity or Quality Levels: In every instance the quantity or quality 
level shovn or specified shall be the minimum to be provi<ted or performed. 
The actual installation may comply exactly, vithin specified tolerances, vith the 
minimum quantity or quality specified, or it may exceed that minimtim vithin 
reasonable limits. In complying vith these requirements, indicated nianeric 
values are minimum or maximum values, as noted, or appropriate for the 
context of the requirements. Refer instances of uncertainty to the Architect 
for a <tecision before proceeding. 

Copies of Standards : Each entity engaged in constrtx;tion on the Project is required to 
be familiar vith industry standards applicable to that entity's construction activity. 
Copies of applicable stai:idards are not bound vith the Contract Documents. 

Vhere copies of standards are needed for performance of a required 
construction activity, the Contractor shall obtain copies directly from the 
publication source. 

Abbreviations and Names Tra<je association names and titles of general standards are 
frequently abbreviated. ¥here such acronyms or abbreviations are used in the 
Specifications or other Contract Documents, they mean the recognized name of the 
trade association, standards generating organisation, authority having jurisdiction, or 
other entity applicable to the context of the text provision. Refer to the "Encyclopedia 
of Associations," published by Gale Research Co., available in most libraries. 


Permits, Licenses, and Certificates: for the Ovner's records, submit copies of permits, 
licenses, certifications, inspection reports, releases, jurisdictional settlements, notices, 
receipts for fee payments, ju<^ments, and similar documents, correspon<tence, and

Materials Preparation : Carefully mix and prepare paint materials in accordance 'with 
manufacturer's directions. 

Maintain containers used in mixing and application of paint in a clean 
condition, free of foreign materials and residue. 

Stir material before application to produce a mixture of uniform density; stir as 
required during application. Do not stir surface film into materiel Remove 
film and, if necessary, strain material before using. 

Use only thinners approved by the paint manufac:turer, and only vlthin 
recommended limits 

Tinting Tint each undercoat a lighter shade to facilitate identification of each coat 
vhere multiple coats of the same material are applied. Tint imdercoats to match the 
color of the finish coat, but provide sufficient differences in shade of undercoats to 
distinguish each sepai'ate coat. 


Apply paint in accordance with manufacturer's directions. Use applicators and 
techniques best suited for substrate and type of material being applied. 

Do not paint o^^ier dirt, rosx. scale, grease, moisture, scuffed surfaces, or conditions 
detrimental to formation of a durable paint film. 

Paint colors, surface treatments, and finishes are indicated in "schedules." 

Provide finish coats that are compatible vith primers used. 

The number of coats and film thickness required is the same regardless of the 
85>plication method. Do not a$>ply succeeding coats until the previous coat has 
cured as recommended by the manufacturer. Sand between applications vhere 
sanding is required to produce an even smooth surface in accordance isith the 
manufacturer's directions.

Apply additionoii coats -vhen undercoats, stains, or other conditions sho-v 
through final coat of paint until paint film is of uniform finish, color, and 
appearsrice. Oive speciel attention to ensure that stirfaces, including edges, 
corners, crevices, velds, and exposed fasteners, receive a dry film thickness 
equivalent to that of flat surfaces. 

The term "exposed storfaces" includes areas visible vhen permanent or bijilt-in 
fixti^jres, con vector covers, covers for finned tube radiation, grilles, and similar 
components are in place. Extend coatings in these areas as required to maintain 
the system integrity and provide desired protection. 

Paint surfaces behind movable equipment and furniture same as similar 
exposed sijrfaces. Paint surfaces behind permanently fixed equipment or 
fluTiiture vith prime coat only before final installation of equipment. 

Paint back sides of access panels and removable or hinged covers to match 
exposed surfaces. 

Finish interior of '^'all and base cabinets and similar field-finished casevork to 
match exterior. 

finish exterior doors on tops, bottoms, and side edges same as exterior faces. 

Sand lightly between each succeeding enamel or varnish coat. 

Omit primer on metal surfaces that have been shop-primed and touch up 

Scheduling Painting : Apply first coat to surf&ces that have been cleaned, pretreated, or 
otherwise prepared for painting as soon as practicable after preparation and before 
subsequent surface deterioration. 

Allov sufficient time befs'een successive coats to permit proper drying. Do not 
recoat until paint has dried to vhere it feels firm, and does not deform or feel 
sticky under moderate thumb pressure and vhere agjplication of another coat of 
paint does not cause lifting or loss of adhesion of the undercoat. 

Minimum Coating Thickness : Apply materials at not less than the manufacturer's 
recommended spreading rate. Provide a total dry film thickness of the entire system as 
recommended by the manufacturer. 

Prime Coats : Before application of finish coats, apply a prime coat of material as 
recommended by the manufacturer to material that is required to be painted or 
finished and has not been prime coated by others. Recoat pnmed and sealed surfaces 
where evidence of suction spots or unsealed ai'eas in first coat appears, to assure a 
finish coat with no bvu'n through or other defects due to insufficieiit seeling
